Prepare a Presentation

  • Show one of the prism nets you drew and explain why it represents the prism. (You might want to print your drawing, cut it out, and then assemble it to prove that your net represents the prism.)
  • Explain how you determined the surface area of the prism.

Challenge Problem

  • Several different rectangular prisms are each made up of 24 cubes. Will their nets all look the same? Provide examples to support your answer.
